Charlie’s Chatter Archive

On the Lookout

Gazing upon this month’s Chatter, we’ve spotted a solution to issues commonly experienced with larger vertical turbine pump systems. Next, we get an eyeful of how the heat (efficiency) has been turned up on the latest industrial plate heat exchangers.  Our last observation is three attributes that separate one brand of field equipment enclosures from all the rest.

One for the Road

For this Chatter road trip, the first stop shines a light on activated filtration media and an underdrain system from the leading global provider of screening solutions. Next, it’s time to take a turn and go in-depth on three-screw pump design and operation. At the finish, it’s an accelerated look at an ideal non-metallic gear pump for metering chemicals.

March Madness

In the spirit of the teamwork and the tournament, this month’s Chatter tips-off with a celebration of 75 years of American ingenuity in thermoplastic pump design and development. That’s followed by a full court press on why design deliberations dedicated to the end-user pays off in the end when it comes to rotary lobe pumps. At the buzzer, it’s a game-winning three from the unrivaled experts in inflated laser welded heat transfer products.

Over the Hump

This month we start things off by making a case (study) for a polymer system that actually reduced polymer usage by over 25%. Next, we take a quick spin through next-generation aeration and mixing technology. Then top things off with three reasons to go above (the wet well) and switch from submersible pumps.

Old and New

We’re kicking off the new year with a look inside field equipment protection and shelters that are built to last. Next, it is all about making what’s old, new again with the help of a one-stop shop for all your rebuild needs. Things wind up by highlighting three key advantages when it comes to rotary positive displacement 3-screw pumps.

Forest from the Trees

For December, we’re shining a light on recovering and reusing waste energy by taking you inside a leading gasketed plate heat exchanger. That’s followed by sharing new accolades and accreditation achieved by a global leader in corrosion control. We finish by toasting the benefits of a metering gear pump that sets the industry standard for true precision metering in challenging applications.

A Matter of Choice

We begin by slicing into what makes for reliable and high-quality hydraulically actuated diaphragm metering pumps and non-metallic gear pumps. Then we stir things up with a look at inducting and flash mixing gas and/or liquid chemicals with superior velocity gradient mixing intensity into open channels, basins, or tanks. Then it’s onto the plates, with the original developer of laser welded heat transfer surface and the largest supplier of inflated heat transfer surface.

The Trick to Treats

This month we’re treating you to a clarifying message from the CEO of a leading provider of water quality solutions, and a local example of the impact their polymer activation system can have. Then we mix in a look at the next generation of wastewater solutions, including mixing aerators for pump stations, wet wells, and lift stations, as well as floating aerators for large wastewater tanks and lagoons. To wrap up, we spotlight the advantages of a retractable quill developed specifically for sodium hypochlorite, as just one example from a complete line of retractable injection quills.

Harvesting

Plow right in with an example of a leading pump manufacturer providing real solutions to real challenges. Next, see why you’ve now “got a guy” when it comes to clarifier servicing, repair, or replacement. Then reap the benefits with a look at unparalleled performance and reliability in online disinfection monitoring in action.

Hot Stuff

To start, we’re tapping the inventor of the reverse-flow strainer, acknowledging the key role these strainers play in various stages of the wastewater treatment process, and identifying what truly sets them apart. For relief, a look at passive intakes and underdrain systems that represent the latest innovations in static intake screening equipment. To close, throw strikes by getting straight to the advantages thermoplastic pumps have over three other pump compositions.

Out and About

Take a turn at seeing how leading three-screw technology tackles the toughest pumping challenges. Then find out that even though the name has changed, the results remain when it comes to polymer activation and blending methods. To wrap things up, quickly flow through a set of inline static mixing and blending solutions that stand apart from the rest.

Summer Sizzle

Bring on the heat, as we explore an array of exceptional laser-welded and hydraulically-inflated laser plates for efficiently and effectively heating or cooling products in a multitude of applications. Then mixing things up with the next generation of wastewater solutions, including mixing aerators for pump stations, wet wells, and lift stations, as well as floating aerators for large wastewater tanks and lagoons. Finally, we let ‘the boys in the lab’ make a splash by making the case for protecting your control room electronics in order to prevent downtime, reduce maintenance costs, and avoid unwanted replacement expenses.
